CC Outtake: The CC Magnet Impala

A couple weeks ago, I saw this weary but hardworking Impala coupe next to a Buick GS400 convertible. Now, it’s attracted a Fox-platform Lincoln Continental and a Pontiac Firebird.

And a Volvo 122. Your older car may fall into the Impala vortex regardless of its country of origin.

I wouldn’t stop for any one of these on its own. In fact, I’d probably drive faster to get away from that Lincoln–there are so many ways to get a 302 V8 without an imitation Seville trunk! Still, even if you ignore the Lexus in the driveway, this lineup easily represents more than 150 automotive service years, and that’s pretty impressive.
